Just a small pinch of salt can level out the sourness of a cocktail. The egg whites in this drink create a foam on top of the liquid, which allows the salt to melt into the glass as you sip.

1 In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add 1½ oz whisky, 1 oz lemon juice, 1 oz Simple Syrup (recipe follows) and ½ oz egg whites. Shake sharply and strain into a coupe glass. Add a pinch of salt.
